Blur : No distance left to run
Damon wails winningly about screwing up his life. Aaaaaaargh!
For God's sake, man! Why bring this out now? You've just had a baby, you've got a new girl, a new life, a new postcode: doesn't it feel weird having this beamed out across the airwaves now? Is it that good a song that you just [I]had [/I]to release it (let's face it, it's the third single off the album, it's a bit country how good is it going to be?)? [I]"When you're coming down, think of me"[/I]. Indeed. He must
have a very patient or very suicidal new girlfriend.
On the plus side though, CD1 contains a tremendous new mix of 'Tender' by Cornelius which pricks the overblown strings of the original and replaces them with zinging guitars and bells as Damon wails winningly about screwing up his life. Aaaaaaargh!
